E. Ky. school district files lawsuit against state

JACKSON, Ky. (AP) - School board members in Breathitt County have filed a lawsuit against the state.

The lawsuit seeks to put control of the school district back into local hands.

The Kentucky Board of Education gave management of the Appalachian school district to the state last year after audits found management and finances in disarray.

Officials with the Department of Education told the station that they haven't received a copy of the lawsuit and declined to comment.
